In My Mailbox!

Oh my gosh, my first "In My Mailbox"! I'm blanching from the stress as we speak *grins*.

Tithe by Holly Black

City Of Bones by Cassandra Clare

Stake That! by Mari Mancusi

The Devouring by Simon Holt

Wondrous Strange by Lesley Livingston

Seriously, the only book that literally came in the mail was The Devouring. Oh, technicalities. I had one friend (*cough**cough* You know who you are.) buy me City Of Bones and she gave me Stake That! as a sort of consolation prize. (I'm kidding. I'm kidding.) Nah, I just traded her for it. What I traded, though, is a secret and will be kept confidential unless she says so which she might just to make my secrecy look completely stupid, which I'm sure it already does. My other friend, who is completely ignorant to the obsession of books and the facts that there are many many book blogs, bought me Wondrous Strange which I knew that I needed to read after reading The Story Siren's review of it. I'm saving it for last, out of all of the books in my TBR pile. Why not save the hardback for last (I'm done with The Devouring, so my words are true.), after all? And lastly, I bought Tithe for myself because I had the money and you can never have too many fairie/fairy/faerie/faery books on your bookshelf. Now will someone decide the official spelling for those frickin' little creature, please? Or rather, the creatures who are believed to be frickin little winged creatures. Nevertheless, it's buggin' me, and I'm just glad they don't change fey to fay or feye or faye OR fiya. Why fiya? Because it is close enough.
I will be doing a triple review tomorrow, so make sure not to check in. Haha, I hope that you guys have learned that I am an obsessive user of reverse-psychology. If not, now you know.

I wonder who this friend of yours is *coughcough*

I have no idea *cough**cough*.

I see you've read The Devouring AND Tithe. And I only finished Lily Dale: Awakening, and barely started Jars of Glass. Psh I bet you're at least half done with City of Bones ALREADY. Take it slow Tay. Watch some T.V.

No books in the mail today for me. Maybe tomorrow.

Did you PM Melyssa with your review for The Devouring yet?

Actually I'm only about 50 pages from being done with City of Bones, thank you very much. OMG, there was such a horrible plot twist a moment ago!!! Clary's romantic situation seems hopeless now. Sigh.

City of Bones is LOVE.

It is. It really is.
